What we say: 3.5 stars

One of the first Buddhist temples to be built following traditional Vietnamese architecture practices, Vinh Nghiem Pagoda is a complex of Buddhist buildings in District 3.

The pagoda has bragging rights to the tallest Buddhist tower in the city, rising up seven storeys to 40 metres in height. The pagoda is also home to a large statue of Buddha, located in the middle of the main temple, to which people pray for luck and happiness.

One of the more popular Buddhist temples in the city, it becomes especially crowded on lunar holidays and the 15th of each month; if you wait in the long holiday lines you can take your turn ringing the large bell just outside of the main temple.
